Dean Castle Collections at The Dick Institute
|Date||Occurs 06/06/2018 - 06/06/2021|
|Time||Tues/wed 10-6pm, Thurs 1-8pm, Fr|
From June 2018 Dean Castle will undergo major repair and refurbishment works.
As a result, the Castle’s fabulous and important collections of early musical instruments, arms and armour, tapestries and more will be brought to the Dick Institute for safe-keeping, and for a period of around 2 years these collections will be displayed and stored in the North Museum. During this period, they will be made ready to be returned when Dean Castle re-opens in 2021.
A series of events, workshops, recitals and displays will take place to let visitors get an in-depth look at these collections. Due to the scale of this move, expected to take several months, these displays will change and develop over time.
